Exeter Chiefs vs Gloucester
Exeter Chiefs welcomes Gloucester to Sandy Park for this match in the Gallagher Premiership. The home team will be looking to bounce back after their defeat to the Saints last time out while the visitors suffered a similar fate when they were beaten by Bath. Both sides will be looking to improve their defence after they conceded plenty of soft tries in their defeats. Exeter have looked brilliant in their home games but have struggled on the road, losing both their away matches. Gloucester will be looking for more impact from the bench as they let a 10-point halftime slip in their defeat.
TIP: Exeter have brought in Joe Hawkins into the midfield to partner Henry Slade although the latter moves to inside centre. They will be looking to attack the visitors in the forwards as they are missing some regulars from the pack. Gloucester looked excellent in the first half of their last match but ill discipline cost them dearly. They will be punished if they concede penalties in their own half as Exeter have one of the best driving mauls in the league. The bookies have Exeter as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.18, Gbets 1.19 and Hollywoodbets 1.18

- The home team have won the last five matches between the sides.
Latest results for both teams
Exeter lost 34-19 to the Saints in their last match while Gloucester lost 45-27 to Bath in their last match.
Exeter have shown this season that they are much more inclined to run the ball compared to recent years when they used their forwards to take the ball up all the time. They will be looking to Slade and Harvey Skinner to link up their dangerous backline that includes the likes of Tommy Wyatt and Immanuel Feyi-Waboso. Gloucester have their own threats in the backline with Welsh flyer Louis Rees-Zammit capable of creating tries from absolutely nothing. Exeter on their home patch always look to get a fast start so the visitors will do well to keep the oppositions scoring to a minimum in the opening half. The power of the Exeter pack will see them to a win by more than 13 points.
